Broken Crystals

When Crystal collapses in the middle of the road after another beating, headlights are the last thing she sees. She wakes up in a strange house, surrounded by five strange boys. She refuses to relax around them or be herself. But can the one Irish boy with the beautiful blue eyes show her what it means to be loved and fix her cracks?

64. Sunshine and Darkness

 


Crystal's POV


"Cee be careful!" I shout, going to stand up from the blanket. 
"I've got her," Niall says, pressing me back down. Since Calla had learnt to crawl she had been non-stop... she was everywhere. I shake my head, chuckling softly and taking a sip of lemonade.
"She sure is an active little thing," Perrie notes, chuckling too. We were sitting outside in the sunshine at Niall's Mum and Step-Dad's house in Ireland. I watch with a smile as Niall rushes over to her; scooping her up into his arms and spinning her around. She giggles in delight, blue and green eyes lighting up. Niall's mum comes out of the house, smiling at me before heading over to Niall. She coos over Cee, who reaches her chubby hands out, clenching her fists and opening them again repeatedly. Maura takes Cee into her arms and kisses her forehead. 
"God knows what it's going to be like when she learns to walk." I say, shaking my head again and taking a strawberry from the bowl infront of us both. 
"And talk," Perrie adds, taking a sip of her lemonade.
"Oh jesus," I mutter, chuckling with her. I spot Harry, Louis and Liam chasing Danielle, Susie and El around the garden a few meters away; all of them laughing happily. 
"Shall we go see Uncle Zayn?" Niall says to Cee. She reaches out and pinches his nose; causing him to nibble her fingers playfully. She giggles and Niall takes her from Maura before placing her on his shoulders as he makes his way into the house.
"Shall we go in?" I suggest, standing up from the blanket.
"Sure," Perrie smiles, following me into the house; the sound of Calla's laughter filling the warm air. 

 

Crystals POV 

 

"Really," I groan, turning over. Cee was crying, again. I don't know why she was suddenly so upset... She had been sleeping soundly since she was born nine months ago. She had been in the hospital for the first four days of her life as the doctors wanted to keep a close eye on her. It was terrifying. Me and Niall hadn't left her side the whole time. 
"Don't worry, I'll get her." Niall whispers, sitting up in bed and kissing my forehead before clambering over to the door. Letting my head fall back onto the pillow I listen to the soft singing and mumbling coming through the wall from Cee's room next door. Smiling, I let my eyes slide shut. A few moments later the sound of footsteps down the hall and towards my room makes me open them again. 
"Perrie?" I whisper into the room as the door nudges open and Perrie's shape appears in the doorway. She doesn't say anything, just sniffles. 
"Perrie?" I repeat, sitting up and frowning. I squint through the darkness as she wanders over to me and sits down on the edge of the bed. In the faint light coming from the hall outside the door I can see the tears streaking her cheeks. 
"Perrie, what's happened?" I ask her softly, hugging her to me. 
"He... He..." Perrie stammers, heaving with a sob. Something had obviously upset her; I had never seen her cry like this before. 
"Perrie. Take a deep breath and calm down," I whisper, holding her at arms length and studying her face with concern.
"What happened?" I ask again, looking at her tear stained cheeks and puffy eyes. 
"He... Zayn he... Urgh." She groans, flinging her face into her hands. 
"Just lay down," I whisper to her, moving to the side.
"But... Niall..." She murmurs, shaking her head. 
"Sh, it'll be fine. Just lay down Pez." I say, gently pushing her down. She gives in and let's her head fall onto the pillow with a defeated flop. 
"Crystal I-" she starts to whisper but I cut her off. 
"Leave it till morning," I whisper back, letting my eyes drift shut.
